Baan Lompai offers comfortable, newly renovated accommodation (2015) with a private pool and walled garden, just 3km from Ao Nang Beach.
The 4 bedroom property consists of a spacious 200sqm single storey house, with three bedrooms and three bathrooms. A separate guest bungalow with 1 bedroom and en-suite bathroom is located in the garden, which makes the villa suitable for families travelling with friends, grandparents or in-laws.
Keen cooks will appreciate the large, fully-equipped kitchen, as well as the outdoor barbecue area. And everyone will appreciate the villa’s versatility: dining options are many – either indoors; on the terrace; or in the garden, while places to relax include the indoor lounge, the TV room to watch a movie (large DVD library), on the verandah for a drink, by the pool to read a book. Wi-fi is available throughout the property. The large garden provides ample space for children to run, play and explore the tropical plants, fruit trees and fish pond. There is a basketball hoop and croquet set available, as well as a small selection of children’s books and board games.
The three bedrooms in the main house are comprised of 2 doubles with ensuite bathroom (the master bedroom having a large, spa-style bathroom, with semi-outdoor tub and shower) and a twin (two single beds) that uses the communal third bathroom, sleeping six in total. A baby cot and high chair are also available for those travelling with small children. The house is pleasantly decorated with wooden Thai furniture and jewel-coloured fabrics and has a nice collection of reading material and DVDs belonging to its owners. As the villa is managed directly by the owners and not by a rental company, it feels homely, and has a friendly, personable appeal.
Baan Lompai has its own swimming pool, with a small shallow area for toddlers that is easily visible from the terrace, and poolside sun loungers. The whole property is surrounded by a high wall. Should you wish to venture out, there is a bicycle (handy for picking up groceries at the convenience store down the road), as well as one round trip tuk-tuk ride included in the nightly rate, that will allow guests to travel anywhere in the local area, for example to the beach front for dinner, or to the local market. There is also a basic local convenience store directly opposite the house.
The villa is within the standard Ao Nang pick up route, if you wish to book tours and excursions to explore the islands etc. – the owners have also left their own suggestions for days out for families or groups of friends. The English-speaking villa manager is reachable via the villa mobile phone to arrange any other services you may require, such as an in-house masseuse or Thai chef.
